BBC Radio 4 sketch show written and performed by comedy quartet The Throbbs (Tim Firth, Tim de Jongh (a.k.a. Scott), Michael Rutger (a.k.a. Smith) and William Vandyck), broadcast in two series (1990 & 1991) of six episodes each plus two Christmas episodes. Sharing the comedy style of three contemporary sketch shows - Radio 1's The Mary Whitehouse Experience, Radio 4's The Skivers and TV Channel 4's Absolutely - it featured surreal quick-fire sketches loosely connected by a narrative thread (usually involving taking the entire audience out of the studio and losing them) plus songs by Tim Firth.
A TV pilot show was made but not broadcast; instead, another pilot calledIt's A Mad World, World, World, World, written by the same foursome but performed by a different line-up, was broadcast then dropped. It is available on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcpL3c7jQRU.
